Sorry: I meant: a compiled kernel tree. Basically the same requirements as
for the modem module.

Why isn't there any package "kernel-devel" that would include all the
required files necessary to compile files based on a certain binary kernel
from my distro?

All those files have been created when the kernel image packae was
created. It is basically amatter of shoosing what should go in there and
what not.

In the worst case it is the full kernel comiplation tree . But are all of
those files really necessary?
